Graphic Design is a great avenue to pursue. The great thing is, is you can take basic beginners classes for various programs through youtube or search on google. If you are interested then you can try for an internship or take classes in school. I do graphic design and have been completely self taught. Good luck!

I feel the best way to find people in this field would be through social media! I am a content creator myself, and I upload videos on instagram, and what I have found, by using hashtags and following them are that, the whole artistic community is very helpful and social, and open to interacting with their followers, and encourage collaborations. It is so easy nowadays to find like-minded people, if you effectively use Instagram and LinkedIn.
You should upload some of your work on social media too, and use hashtags effectively to find a like-minded audience, and invite enquiries about your work.
You should also learn how to use tools like Adobe photoshop, illustrator and Premiere pro(if you're into video editing) as all design firms have those skills as a prerequisite.
There is a lot of scope for all types of designers today, as aesthetics are a major aspect of any type of platform or product, so all the best!
Great question and there are some great responses here already. I’ll add some advice from a general perspective in finding a career path. I feel it also helps to try and find a job or career that is also something you love doing. It may take some time to find your "dream job" but often, trying out different types of careers and opportunities, volunteering, as Sheila suggests, you may get opportunities to also decide what you do and don't like.
This is a link to an older article, but I've always liked the process of asking yourself these key questions to find your own “Career Sweet Spot.” 1. What brings you joy? 2. What are you great at? 3. What will people pay you, enough, to do? http://developmentcrossroads.com/2012/08/3-questions-to-find-your-career-sweet-spot/
You can start with questions like these and doing more research on careers have interest in learning more about.
Best wishes for success in your education and career goals.

The most important thing is to have an interest.
Take drawing/art classes at a community college. You to be able to move up to more advanced art courses, that will help you find the area best suited for you, as you will discover your individual style, abilities, interests and get guidance and direction that may not otherwise be intuitive. ~.~
